Organic. 100% Riesling. The 2019 was sourced entirely from the Northern part of Standing Stone Vineyards. Planted in the "banana belt" on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, this 5-acre Standing Stone site sits in a warm microclimate on well drained silt loam soils, called Honeoye. Whole-cluster pressed and then went through spontaneous fermentation with no temperature control. It lasted from 10/23 to 4/21 until it was racked out of its primary fermentation tank and bottled on 4/22. No added sulfur.
Fossil & Till was started in 2013 as a project between three friends with the goal of producing unorthodox, naturally made wines in the Finger Lakes. Inspired by natural winemaking from regions like the Loire and Beaujolais, Fossil & Till focuses on a minimalist approach to winemaking: native yeast fermentation, no additions of acids, sugars, or enzymes, little to no fining or filtration, and minimal additions of sulfur. For the first vintage in 2013, they created a pétillant naturel- a traditional method used to make sparkling wines that predates the Champagne method.
